Using this file will make teaching 4th grade social studies TEKS 4.15A a snap. Included are 6 short passages that explain the details and importance of the following documents in early Texas history:
Texas Declaration of Independence
Republic of Texas Constitution
Treaty of Velasco
State of Texas Constitution
Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
In addition to the passages, are comprehension question pages for each passage to check for understanding, and vocabulary study questions to give your students practice using context clues to determine meaning of unknown words.
Use these passages as a mini lesson, in stations, small groups or as a cross-curricular SS/ELAR lesson.
I hope you find this helpful and that your students enjoy learning about these important events in the history of our great state!
